to what extent, if any, do you think that the preponderance of batsmen from the sub-continent in this list is related to the fact that they play rather more often on sub-continental pitches? i wonder, does the list of batting averages outside the sub-continent look significantly different? (i'd crunch the stats myself, but I'm really supposed to be working... ;))

The Reverse Sweep

As you hint Wilo, I'm sure that the more Tests you play on the sub-continent the more likely it is that you will have a higher average over this period. Your comment piqued my interest, so I did try and see if Cricinfo was able to run the stats you suggested. Alas (unless I have looked incorrectly) it seems that this is not possible.
